Free Fire

Proving once again that any Ben Wheatley film is well worth seeing, his latest offering throws the rule book out of the window and goes to show that a well acted and cleverly cut film can be wildly entertaining with the bare minimum of storyline or character development. Wheatley shows that less is more by focusing the film's entire running length to a single set piece that plays out in real time; a shoot out in a warehouse after an arms deal goes wrong. Without any complicated plot details to be thinking about the audience is given time to revel in the details; the sharp dialogue, the fantastic gun sound FX and the surprising use of John Denver on the soundtrack.
